on the books, now laws in our country. i think that's what we are going to have to do. we are going to have to find people, across the aisle, who we can work w. in order to pass legislation in this area of gun violence that will make a difference in the lives of millions of americans. >> mr. lynch. >> sure. i want to point out that we serve in the legislature with 435 members. you can't break for lunch without getting 218 votes. so whenever you hear a legislator saying i solve the cargo security issue, i'm responsible for port security even though i voted against t. i'm the one who is responsible for nuclear safety, i'm the one who did the assault weapons ban, look, the truth of the matter is ed has been on the side of big business. on ast at that -- 1/2 25 -- nafta on fishing rights, i'm with the fishermen, you're with the fish. on the banking issues, i'm with the taxpayers, and the people of america, you're with the big banks and the bailout. on all these issues on the telecommunications, you're with the telecommunications companies. >> that's quite a laundry list. let him respond. >> tha
. you mentioned the amount of law enforcement and the different law enforcement agencies there responding to that. i also want to share with our viewers an alert that has come through from m.i.t.'s emergency alert system. this is from about 30 minutes ago where they are still advising those on the campus of m.i.t. to please remain indoors saying that police have not determined that the campus is safe. that sf in response to a shooting on campus. in that case an m.i.t. police officer was reporting to a response of a disturbance when he was shot. authorities say that he was shot multiple times officials are saying there are no other victims in that shooting, they are still investigating. no arrests have been made. they are pursuing a suspect there. about 4 1/2 miles away from cambridge, where there was another instance of violence there this evening. at least three explosions and several gun shots. we do not have reports of injuries at watertown. when something like this happens, there is a massive law enforcement response at the time that this violence first started. witne

is something we should fear right now, since i was born there have been about 50,000 wiretaps approved by law enforcement. every year for last couple years more than 1.5 million requests have been made by law enforcement mostly through technology companies, without us knowing about it we can't find out who did it. there has been a game change over the last 10 years esince 9/11, where pendulum swung way in direction of government actually knowing a hell of a lot more about you know that they used to, that is troubling. neil: i think that the jeannie is out of the bottle, and whether government know spired or not -- inspired or not, the fact is when we hop to web sites, and allow ourselves to be an open book. we open our books, i'm saying where does it go. >> we as people have the right to do that as an individual. if i want to put my entire life out there great, but i can block my cousin and friend from facebook, but to matt's point, people don't know the kind of information that is being compiled from having your grocery store card. neil: government could overstep your block, you know? >> go

in ten or 15 minutes. >> we learned today from the law enforcement press conference around 5:00 that suspect number two, when who has been identified as dzhokar tsarnaev escaped last night's shootout. his older brother died. that's confirmed as well. and we were told today at the press conference, i think much to people's astonishment that dzhokar tsarnaev escaped on foot. and how could he possibly escape the scene on foot and be far away, and now if that is the case and he is in the boat and just a square mile away, that it makes sense he found somewhere to hide in intervening hours. >> yeah. a couple of interesting things should be pointed out. one, first of all, it is really remarkable that he was not discovered last night. because the police presence that was on the ground in this very concentrated area was unlike anything i had ever seen. there were literally hundreds of officers and equipped in tactical outfits and flak jackets and armed with assault rifles going through the neighborhood. there were at least a half dozen different agencies responding, including state po

these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen

>> is this evident? >>> well more than the evidence is law enforcement and others have said at the federal state and local level and indeed from the region, we have an unprecedented level of law enforcement support and they are working very well. >> what is the process so far that helps you understand maybe for the materials and the level of complementty of the device -- complexity and the origin of the devise? >> i think i know what you are getting at. i can't comment on that aspect of that. what is important to say, what i would like to on behalf of the boston j.t. tf today, they say there is no known threat where we are conducting investigative activity and i want to put that out to the citizens and the city of boston and the commonwealth of massachusetts. >> do you know anything about the nature of device -- [inaudible] >> i am not going to be able to comment on the nature of the device right now. >> are they in custody right now? >> i'm not going to say who or who might not be in custody right now. >> is there one person from ocean avenue that are -- and [inaudible]. >>
with armored soldiers or law enforcement officials with assault rifles. we've seen the blackhawks. we've learned the blackhawks are part of the massachusetts natural guard. they're used for transport. we've seen them in the last 15 or 20 minutes passing over. this is very active, and if this guy has been up as i have when i first started to pursue him at 11:00 last night, he's tired. he may be getting cornered in the final 30%. this is very dangerous. on top of that, we know from the controlled explosives that has happened in the last few hours that there are explosives out there. i just want to remind people. while it may look calmer in the scenes we're seeing today, the scene that i rolled up on here behind some 30 or 40 law enforcement officers, everything, fbi, swat, atf, boston police department, everything right into the blocks behind me about three or four streets, and it was aster phying a gun 5 as i've ever seen in iraq or afghanistan. this is a very violent individual, just like his brother. he is feeling perhaps more cornered and tired. it is imperative that they listen, th
than 100 cameras in law enforcement communities. that is all around the world, not just here in the u.s. >>gretchen: thanks for that update. so much more information coming out in the last 48 hours after the killing and then the capture of the suspects. sources now are saying that they acted alone, but the big question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover o
that additional security is located at our substations throughout our service territory. we are working with law enforcement to determine how best to move forward with that increased security. >> reporter: police say on tuesday, someone with a high- powered rifle shot out five transformers at the metcalf substation in south san jose. minutes earlier someone climbed down a manhole to cut fiberoptic cables knocking out 911 service in gilroy. telephone lines were also disrupted at banks and other businesses. >> so i don't know what kind of sabotage but certainly it was an attempt to take down phones, data and power. >> reporter: pg&e said it did not get any specific threats at its other substations, but decided to ramp up security until further notice. >> we'll continue to provide that security and work with law enforcement until we have additional information. >> reporter: earlier they did -- what we do know tonight, juliette, is that they move in floodlights so we know they will be here 24/7. >> as far as 24/7 protection, who pays for the security? >> reporter: a lot of money. pg&e said they will
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. underu.s. law, the united states citizens can not be tried rather in military commissions. martha: but house armed services commission buck mckeown argues that the white house should reconsider. he says, quote, it seems premature to declare that we will not treat tsarnaev as an enemy combatant since we don't know about his affiliations. clearly american citizens must be tried to civilian court, but the same citizen viciously attacked his countrymen, should be exploited for his intelligence value before any trial begins. that will be a debate that rages on for some time on this issue. we'll talk more later in the show with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. bill: looking forward to that coming up here. meanwhile the feds want to talk to the widow of the suspect, tamerlan. she is mother of 3-year-old daughter between the two. the her lawyer said talks are underway with the feds how to proceed with that. he revealed on the last day tamerlan was home when his wife left for work. martha: well the officers who capturedded dzhokh
, law enforcement officials searched an apartment in northern boston massachusetts, police could be seen removing things from the residence, but nothing of interest was found. the home belonged to a 20-year-old man here on a student visa who sustained burns and was seen running from the blast. a senior law enforcement cautioned nbc news that the man is not a suspect and the interest in him is fading. >>> internet chatter has been ruled out. one terrorist group, the pakistani taliban, behind the failed times square bombing of 2010 have told police it is not responsible. and police are on the lookout for a man seen leaving the scene in a dark piece of clothing and a rental truck scene attempting to entry the area near the finish line. msnbc contributor joy reid and joining us from washington is nbc news justice department correspondent pete williams. pete, i'd like to go to you first, given what the president just said coming out and saying it is an act of terror does not come as much of a surprise, given the contours of this. but still something worth remarking on in terms of how the whit
. the death toll still estimated at 5 to 15. >> one of the missing persons was a firefighter/law enforcement officer. i can tell you that individual has been found. he is in a hospital and he has some pretty serious injuries. i don't know the status whether it's critical, serious or whatever. but i was told he is in the hospital. has pretty serious injuries. there are still firefighters missing. >> police say there has been massive out pours from governor's office to feds and other agencies. in the nearby town of abbot we got this video in. 100 cots have been set up to take care of people who will be left homeless and grief counselors to deal with what's happening. >>> we are also now getting reports of lewding happening in the damaged neighborhoods. >> that is a significant concern to us. this is a community that we are going to do our absolute best to protect. and if that means offending folks by not letting them come home right away to keep them safe and neighborhood safe, we'll do that and apologize later. >> you are looking at video that was shot overnight. in terms of new pictures, we
. the hospitals and law enforcement both reporting that there were ball bearings inside this bomb. not some of the other projectiles like nails that you might find in other improvised explosive devices, particularly like those you see in afghanistan. what can the kind of bomb used yesterday tell you about who may have been behind this? >> as a general matter, willie, the type of bomb, the explosives, was this gun powder? was it some higher quality explosive like petn, was it hydrogen peroxide? that will give a load about the type of organizations behind this. the fact there were ball bearings in this is it clearly tells you that whoever did this was intending to maim and kill. this wasn't an attempt to just, you know, do some damage and scare some people. this was someone or a group trying to kill people. you know, beyond that, i think it's really dangerous to say ball bearings suggest domestic or international. the fact is whether it's al qaeda or domestic terrorist groups or hezbollah, all of these groups have used different sorts of motus operenda. it will be a different lead for investi
transportation, of schools, of businesses. no one is going in or out of this area except law enforcement. residents are sheltered in place. they are searching for this 19- year-old suspect that is still on the run. there is the latest picture we got of him this morning. that is 19-year-old dzhokhar tsamaev. he is considered armed and dangerous. he is one of two suspects believed to be behind the boston marathon bombings. these two suspects are brothers. let's take a look at the pictures that were released by authorities yesterday. the man on the left of your screen, you can see that we have put dead under his picture because this is the 26-year-old brother who was killed last night in a shootout with police. what we've learned about him this morning in the last hour or so that apparently when he was killed he had explosives on him and a trigger. that obviously raises the level of concern, because they believe if this 26-year-old brother is capable of that, obviously then this 19-year-old still on the run, very very dangerous at this time. considered in the neighborhood, possibly in that
to talked to a law enforcement agent. there was a pressure documenter lid that went up -- cooker lid that went up in the explosion. it landed on the rooftop. of this is critical. investigators so far have indicated they think one, if not two of the bombs was made out of a pressure cooker. finding another part of it and finding where it landed will be one more piece of what we know is a very complicated puzzle. pam? >> emily, since you've been there all week. and you are near a pretty big crime scene there. what about the businesses that are in that area? what is it like there? >> reporter: it's a really good question. when you look at the cars going behind me, it looks normal and then you go two more blocks down. it's completely shut off. you can't get to those businesses. we have the hotel that's very nearby. the perimeter is right on the edge of the perimeter of this crime scene. and the area that's blocked off and yesterday just to get back to my hotel after we were talking with you, i had to show them my photo i.d. i had to show them my hotel key before i was able to go. and our
is in custody. >> megyn: bill hemmer, thank you, friend. see you soon. law enforcement now pouring over images from the scene and you heard bill how they're asking anyone who was there to send them pictures. what you're about to see a one example of what authorities are looking at. you will he see a man cross the finish line and kiss his children and then you'll hear the first explosion and 12 seconds or so later you will hear the second blast. listen here. >> great job!. [explosion] >> we now know that three people were killed and just under 200 people were injured in those moments. the authorities will also be looking at this video where moments after the explosion, look, you see two large pieces more than two, but those two we highlighted for you, metal flying, we've spot-shadowed them here and pieces of evidence that they'll use to determine who may be behind the terrible event. coming up later in the show we're going through the video with one of the world's foremost explosives experts who has worked on nearly every major terror investigation in recent memory, including the 1983 bombing
, while horrific and have caused horrific injury, what we're hearing from law enforcement sources are that they were not terribly sophisticated. they were small. it would have been much worse if it was a higher explosive like c-4 or plastic explosive so you just can't really tell yet. we don't know enough about the forensics to know was this a domestic terrorist group. it's possible, right. we've seen things like oklahoma city, that tragedy. so it could be a domestic group. law enforcement has been careful to say that's the question they can't answer tonight, domestic or foreign. >> very important to do that because so many rumors are swirling around. we live in an era of twitter, facebook, a rumor goes round the world in a few seconds and can be very damaging. is that why the president, you think, was quite circumspect in the use of language, didn't mention terrorism at all, in fact. >> that's obviously right. they want to be absolutely sure what they're dealing with before getting ahead of it. what can be said looking at past plots is al qaeda as a group has encouraged the use o
by the f.b.i. i want to thank law officials for their hard work and diligence in keeping those of us who work in the capitol complex safe. as for the u.s. postal service, they say their primary concern is keeping their employees safe, their customers safe and keeping the u.s. mail safe as well. >>gretchen: let's do some other headlines. a thrift store worker hospitalized after an explosion in his face. the georgia man suffered minor burns and immediately people started thinking of the boston attack. >> given yesterday's event, we're going to be extra cautious. that's why you see the response you're seeing here today. >>gretchen: however officials do say that incident was isolated. >>brian: american airlines says they'll be back to near normal operations today. a major computer meltdown forced the airline to cancel nearly 1,000 flights and delay over 1,000 more. american says their reservation system was down for hours. thousands of passengers were left stranded in airports around the country certainlying for information. -- searching for information. >> after we were there for an hour or
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
. this couple's personal grudge may to be blame for a series of small town killings that put law enforcement on a nationwide high alert. we haven't been updating this case of the texas prosecutors who have been killed because we have been so focused on everything that's happening there have been major divoms. we will bring them to you. as our nation mourns the despicable attacks on the boston marathon, we are seeing a growing surge of prism o. patriotism in this country. turned their own losses in the wake of the september 11th attacks of a powerful message of strength and hear how they among some others in this country now believe these terrorists messed with the wrong people. >> a little bit earlier in the bobby statute. the name is martin richard. of course martin richard was one of the 8-year-old boy, one of the three who lost his life here on monday. with the spark miles card from capital one, bjorn earns unlimited rewas for his small business take theseags to room 12 please.

secretary jay carney. >> this is the result of sequester that was never meant to be law. it was never meant to be law for reasons like this. congress can act. it could have acted in the past. it could have brought down the sequester and avoided it entirely. congress could act now to do that. republicans in congress could decide that the victory party is over and it's time to get serious about the economy. >> reporter: now, it was never meant to be, but it is a fact of life for travelers just as the summer traveling season begins to heat up. bill? >> hampton, thank you very much. so what impact will an air traffic control slowdown have on the airline business and on their stocks? joining us, seth caplan, managing partner at airline weekly. an online airline industry newsletter. and our own phil lebeau joining us as well. seth, obviously the sequester was meant to be a worst case scenario. nobody wanted to see it happen, but it has. is this the worst case scenario for the airline business right now in your view? >> not the worst case scenario, but it's certainly very frustrating. for the all
activity to local law enforcement. >> he also warns there could be people randomly searching bags throughout the city of boston, particularly if you're riding the boston transit system in the city, going from place to place. boston is open for business. people ka go to work with the exception of these many blocks that are shut down where the actual explosions occurred but there will be a heightened sense of vigilance. there is a possibility you could be stopped and there could be questions asked of you. if you are here in the area, they are asking you to call in any suspicious activity. it is the f.b.i. that is in charge of this investigation that has been taken over, of course, by the feds, by the federal government. that is who is in charge of this at this point in time. they are asking anyone to call with any little bit of information that you may have if you were anywhere near the scene where these explosions occurred. pieces of video -- they say no piece of information is too small. megyn, steve, brian. >>brian: ocean avenue and revere, is that anywhere near where you are? >>
to let the law enforcement play out such as it is. >>gretchen: especially what happened yesterday with news media scrambling with impending arrests, arrests have been made, people coming to the courthouse and none of that turned out to be true. the f.b.i. had to cancel their entire series of press conferences they were going to do yesterday because, quite frankly, it is probably interrupting the whole process in which they're trying to solve this crime. we'll continue to keep you abreast of that major story. at the same time we're showing you pictures of what's going on in west texas on the right side of your screen. >>brian: in fairness to how the story came down, there are sources within the investigation talking to news media. then you get two sources. when you get two or three sources telling you about to happen, you check with your editor and then you come forward, they say you shouldn't have done that. well, they should tell you that the investigation -- >>steve: you've got a whole bunch of different agencies working on this case. you've got boston police, department of home
to law enforcement in the coming hours, days and weeks. >> if you see something, say something, and that's what they're counting on, but the investigation obviously is just beginning here, and so much now. >> much more ahead on "nbc nightly news". -- >> bring out the best in others, the ones they seek to harm. >> right, there's still discussion obviously whether this was international terrorism or domestic terrorism. do you have a feeling on that? >> i this i this is one of those things you have to wait to play out. often there is a claim of responsibility quickly which we haven't seen yet. that could mean nothing. they say in those bombs they had bebes and ball bearings and i guess they asked one of the terrorism experts. as lester just the fbi special agent in charge they're processing live digital evidence right now. that is a priority. why the officials who spoke at that press conference, already they received tips, they're getting an awful lot of feedback from the general public as to what may have happened behind us yesterday afternoon. lester, we arrived here in the early evening
for intelligence, not law enforcement purposes. this is highly controversial and could affect the government's case. but at some point in that interrogation which only lasted a few hours, which apparently consisted of him writing answers because he can't speak due to the injury to his throat. at some point in that interrogation, agents, professional interrogators decided we're not going to get anywhere or we've already learned everything we can learn from him. they also have on their shoulder, breathing down their neck, so to speak, a federal rule of procedure which requires he be charged with something within 48 hours. otherwise they have to let him go. they did charge him with this complaint filed by an f.b.i. agent who basically wrote a ten-page affidavit summarizing the evidence that they have against him. this f.b.i. agent personally viewed the tapes, looked at the evidence, -- >>gretchen: basically he's charged with having a weapon of mass destruction and killing people. but there was so much controversy in the last couple of days about whether or not he should be an enemy combatant. senator
